Catholic Schools Week is a national observance. Locally the St. Mary's School of Owatonna will be taking part in the observation.

The week begins on Sunday, January 29, with a pancake breakfast in the cafeteria from 8AM to 12:30PM. Parents of prospective students will have the opportunity to meet with the teachers and staff. It'll also be a chance for the general public to check out the improvements that have been done to the building over the past year or so.

  • Tuesday the students will present a talent show starting at 12:30PM. It's also Crazy Hair and Crazy Wear Day.
